Port Morien

We are deeply sad­dened to an­nounce the sud­den pass­ing of a beloved wife, mom, grand­mother, and sis­ter, An­nie Agnes (Cath­cart) Butts, age 84. Born in Port Morien, she was the daugh­ter of David and Bessie (MacIn­tosh) Cath­cart.

“Ma”- “Nan­nie” was the rock of our fam­ily; she had a de­vo­tion to her fam­ily like no other. A de­voted wife, she spent her days rais­ing her chil­dren. In her younger years, you could al­ways find her at the ball-field cheer­ing on her chil­dren then her grand­chil­dren. There was noth­ing like walk­ing into her house to the smell of home­made bread and buns. The door was al­ways open, and the teapot was al­ways on. We will miss her daily phone calls and a witty sense of hu­mour. She could al­ways put a smile on any­one’s face. She gave the best ad­vice whether we wanted to hear it or not.

She will be greatly missed by her lov­ing de­voted hus­band, Gor­don ‘Binky’ Butts, her six chil­dren, Lor­raine (Kevin), Gor­don (Angie), Har­vey (Ar­lene), Stan (Linda), Jackie (Deb­bie), Mar­ion (Greg); her 7 grand­chil­dren, Neila, Becky, Leanne, Tara, Kyle, David and John Gor­don; her 13 great-grand­chil­dren. Spe­cial brother, Dougie (Brenda); sis­ter, Ruth. Many nieces and neph­ews, sis­ter and broth­ersin-law along with her spe­cial friends to whom she al­ways wel­comed a phone call or visit from.

She was pre­de­ceased by her par­ents, David and Bessie Cath­cart, mother and fa­therin-law, Har­vey and Bar­bara Butts; sis­ters, June, He­len and Mar­garet; broth­ers, David, Earl and Bar­ney and brother and sis­ters-in-law.

She was hum­ble and kind and in honour­ing her wishes there will be no vis­i­ta­tion a grave­side ser­vice will be held at a later date. In lieu of flow­ers do­na­tions can be made to the Chil­dren’s Wish Foun­da­tion.

Ex­pres­sions of sym­pa­thy may be sent to the fam­ily by vis­it­ing www.tj­tracey.com.
